‘FAREWELL TO CHILDHOOD’ – Tour Dates Added
FURTHER DATES ADDED DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND
Iconic Scottish singer, songwriter and ex-Marillion frontman FISH has announced new tour dates in April, as part of a re-scheduled series of European shows. These dates come straight off the back of a hugely successful sold-out run of the UK with the ‘Farewell To Childhood Tour’ in December last year, which included two sold out shows at London’s Islington Assembly Hall.
‘Farewell To Childhood’ saw FISH perform Marillion’s 1985 chart-topping album Misplaced Childhood in full for the very last time to an absolutely incredible reaction across Europe.
The 17-date tour features six UK shows including a return to London’s Islington Assembly Hall on April 29th before the last ever performance of Misplaced Childhood at the already sold-out venue The Robin in Bilston on May 1st.

Celebrating the breadth of his musical career, FISH has also begun the release of re-mastered albums from his extensive back catalogue of solo full-length releases, with eight planned for release by the end of 2016.
The first three remastered releases, Sunsets on Empire, Raingods With Zippos and Fellini Days, are available now and include previously unreleased demos and live recordings. They can be purchased exclusively on the merchandise stalls throughout the tour and also HERE at Fishheads Club – mail-order service.
All the releases have been remastered, repackaged and reborn in hardback covered books (140 x 126mm) with three CD wallets inside accompanied with 48 pages of original illustrations, artwork and photos. FISH has included highly detailed set of sleeve notes for each release that give background to the albums, the stories behind the lyrics, the writing and recording sessions, and the subsequent touring and band line-ups that were enlisted with them.
All the releases are priced at £16.99 + VAT.
